The second edition of the DataComp conference is behind us

The second edition of the DataComp conference is behind us

The two-day event (19 and 20 September 2023), organised by the TASK Centre of Informatics Tricity Academic Supercomputer and networK in Gdansk, was aimed at presenting the results of scientific work carried out using IT services developed in the National Data Storage, PRACE-LAB and PRACE-LAB2 projects, coordinated by PSNC with the participation of 8 other units – members of the PIONIER Consortium. The programme organiser of the conference was the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center.

During the first day of the event, attended by nearly 90 people from all over Poland, presentations were given from several areas of scientific activity, including physics, chemistry, climate research, as well as R&D applications in the economy, such as:

  •  numerical modelling of the atmosphere in the area of severe phenomena and climate change
  • use of HPC methods for wind farm simulations
  • modelling of the orbital architecture of Jupiter’s planetary systems
  • computer simulation of ship collisions with an offshore wind turbines
  • acceleration of CFD simulations using artificial intelligence methods.

The second day of the conference ended with a panel discussion on the future of research in Poland and the technologies needed: artificial intelligence, big data analytics or cyber security. Participants also had the opportunity to learn about Intel’s new tools for software optimisation on GP-GPU clusters.

DataComp will continue in the years to come under the theme of using modern IT methods and technologies in scientific research and industrial development work, announced Norbert Meyer, Head of the PSNC Data Processing Technologies Division.
